Trump Administration's Support For Iran Protests May Backfire, Experts Warn

US President Donald Trump's recent anti-Tehran comments are the "words of a troublemaker" pursuing "ignorant diplomacy", Iranian officials have declared, as the angry exchanges between Iran and the US rapidly escalate.

Calling the accord as an "embarrassment" that was "defective at its core", the US President then warned of severe consequences if Iran resumed its nuclear programme. He speaks with them daily, she said, but declined to give any details about any steps Trump is looking to take with Iran.

A few hours later, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif fired back.

"This is a moment in history". Meanwhile on Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, made hawkish statements aimed at Iran's leadership at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library.

Limbert was among those held captive at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran during the 1979-1981 Iran hostage crisis, and more recently advised the Obama administration.

US President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted a strongly-worded warning to his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani.

In early 2017 retailers including Nordstrom Inc, Sears Holdings Corp and Kmart dropped or sharply scaled back their assortment of Trump-branded products, though they typically attributed those decisions to poor sales.

The Republican leader's response was reminiscent of the belligerent tone he took with North Korea past year.

"We've been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, [including] our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries".

He said: "The level of corruption and wealth among regime leaders shows that Iran is run by something that resembles the Mafia more than a government". "This will take you nowhere", he said. Iran has insisted it will not renegotiate the deal.

"Drive them out of Syria, don't cut a deal with Russian Federation to give them Syria".

"America wants nothing less than [to] destroy Iran" but "Trump can not do a damn thing against Iran", the commander added.

"We'll see what happens, but we're ready to make a real deal, not the deal that was done by the previous administration, which was a disaster", he said during a speech to the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

He said that the US Broadcasting Board of Governors was going to attempt to circumvent Internet censorship in Iran by creating a slew of Farsi media outlets (including television, radio, digital and social media) to show "ordinary Iranians inside Iran and around the globe [that] America stands with them".
